As we are exposed more and more to violence and such, we see people trying to immitate Jackass. Is peer pressure good? Is it bad? I would say bad for the most part, although it does supplement learning by the ones who fall victim from it and survive. Not all peer pressure results in negative consequences, but peer pressure is inherently negative, as it is a force acting against a persons free will to choose.
